FREE YOUR JOURNEY
Carrying one or more surfboards under the arm(s) has its challenges. Wax gets on body parts and clothing, and if you’re carrying boards and other surf gear over a distance, the hike can be exhausting. Also, surfers carry their surfboards and gear in multiple bags. A backpack and board bag are often used together.
Koraloc developed a one-bag solution that carries multiple surfboards, wetsuits, and towels in one easy-to-carry package. Multiple boards and gear can now be carried over the user's center of gravity away from the arms and legs. The Surfing Backpack.
Koraloc Board Bag
The delivery is very fast and the quality is very good.
Hands down, if you’re a surfer, you need this backpack. Worth every single cent. The only one of its kind, I absolutely love my koralôc bag. I used to be exhausted by the time I made it to the beach. Carrying a heavy long board, a duffel bag or backpack, plus towels or another surf board, while also walking several miles ensured I needed a 30 minute break to catch my breath just getting to the beach. Then, after the session, trying to walk all the way back to my car, I told myself this is the last time, went home, and ordered the Koraloc bag. Best decision I could’ve made. I regularly advocate for this to any surfer I meet and any time I ride my scooter with it on, I get tons of looks and people saying “whoa, look at that! That’s the way to do it,” or “I’ve never seen something that cool before!”
People always ask questions, ask where They can get one, and always smile and love seeing the bag in action.
You will catch lots of attention using the Koraloc bag, but you’ll also have energy to surf or do whatever activity you’re doing when you get there.
As for the product itself, the materials used and the overall design is of high quality. It’s not some cheaply made bag that falls apart after a year. I’ve actually owned this for over 2 years now, and I have to say, it makes life a lot easier if you’re a surfer. Plus, I use it with my Segway ES4 (electric scooter) to get to the spot, having a 7’9 longboard I sometimes have to lean forward a bit and be mindful of height and wind catching my board, but it’s really not bad.
The bag features plenty of storage space, I keep sun cure, surf key, wax, towels, water, my speaker, keys, sunglasses, wallet, everything in the bag. It even has a front side pocket on the right waist strap the fits my very large iPhone. It’s a little snug but still zips! Mind you, I don’t have a case on my phone. Very handy for keeping your phone free of dirt, sand, and anything else.
My only draw back with the pack, sand.
Sand gets everywhere on it. In the buckles, in the straps, compartments and pockets. I do have to regularly get the sand out as best as possible, but sand is part of the beach experience. It’s not a super terrible thing, but do be mindful of it. I do my best to keep the main pockets clear.
Having a longboard the pack does get a little heavy after a while, however, it’s significantly better than carrying everything by hand. I’d much rather it be a little heavy while having a longboard on it, than being beyond completely exhausted without the Koraloc bag.
Honestly even with the extremely minor drawbacks, I could not be happier even 2 years later with my purchase of it.
The handles hold firm, there’s plenty of space, the buckles are well made and hold well, the straps work well, everything just works.
It does take a little time to get strapped up with a board and get the pack on, but that time seems like nothing compared to the time I had to set stuff down that I was carrying just to catch my breath before I had the bag. It doesn’t seem like much just carrying one board, but carrying a wetsuit, backpack, duffel bag, board or multiple boards, and towels, you get winded quick when walking several miles to your spot. To me, the time I takes to set up the pack is nothing compared to the exhaustion you get without the bag.
Possibly the only suggestion I might have for the team, would be maybe including instructions for first time users, or providing how to videos on getting different things strapped into the bag. Maybe like how to videos for surfboards, skateboards, chairs, etc.
It was simple enough to figure out on my own, but it takes a few minutes to find each piece and understand how it straps and buckles in.
All in all, this was one of my favorite purchases and I’ve told so many people about this incredible product. At the time of me writing this, no one is paying me to write this review either. I straight up somehow found this a few years ago, and have been using it since. I absolutely love koraloc and the bag itself.
JJ at Koraloc has been beyond helpful any time I’ve had questions, they even sent me some more Koraloc sticker decals when I asked!
I’ve only had positive experiences with this product and company.
Keep up the amazing work guys. Shakas!🤙🏽
Koraloc Board Bag
I absolutely love this pack. It is perfect for 1 or 2 boards, wetsuit and my other gear. I love not having to deal w the racks on my bike taking up so much room in my garage and car. This backpack is a game changer and I highly recommend it to anyone that hikes or bikes to their surf destination.
Great product. Much easier to tote boards this way than with regular board bag.
I am leaving this review you the USS Carl Vinson, a Navy aircraft carrier, currently on a 5 month deployment. I mean... generosity is one thing, but... this?! I cannot believe the kindness that Koraloc is showing us. They sent two board bags. I will forever remember this. Each month in our work center, a sailor of the month is announced. The donation will be awarded to our next sailors that wins. The decision is based from their work ethic and is awarded to the sailor that has gone above and beyond. These bags are high quality and I would definitely recommend to anyone that surfs. The wet dry bag is an excellent addition and the side pockets are perfect for the fins of my surfboard. Again, thank you so much
The bag is super awesome! Easily fits 2 boards, wetsuits and a towel, with extra room for smaller things like wax. These people are so amazing and generous, we couldn't afford a full priced bag and they gladly sold us a discounted one. Can't wait to take it on our coast trip!
Hello, father of one, carrying board and surf gear in addition to the baby stuff is a real challenge to go to the beach with my wife walking for minutes in the sand, thus that bag is now saving each journey (especially my arms & shoulders). I haven't tested to carry two of my boards yet but I am pretty sure it will be fine too and I still have to arms left to carry more.
In a nutshell, this is my best surf gear investment after my boards of course.
Greetings from South of France.
Love this bag! Totally worth it
Heres me with a 65 board, Im 55 (female). Ive also loaded up a big 1970s heavy glassed 75 board and taken it for about a half mile walk to the beach. It was much easier than carrying the board, thats for sure. But also my back was sore after that. I havent been brave enough to try this on a bicycle yet, and would definitely bring a smaller board for that (Also Im not confident enough on a skateboard for that option, but I know a lot of people are). The backpack itself is really well designed, and its fairly easy to load and unload the board. I was impressed with the quality and design. I will definitely take this back pack on all my future surf trips, because you never know where you might end up wanting to surf... but for someone my size I would not take a board larger than 65 on any long hikes greater than a mile or so or on steep terrain. Actually I might have to get myself a shorter (but wider/more volume) board so I can take full advantage of this backpack!!
My bag finally came today. Super stoked. Thanks to Koraloc. I had to keep a back pack that had my gopro stuff,fins,wax, tools, rash guards etc.then carry a wet/dry bag and no way of carrying 2 boards so this eliminated all of that and able to skate from spot to spot with my hands free. I highly recommend anyone getting this.____
My son LOVES this!!!!
